Ring in the New Year Antarctica-style! If you’re looking for something different, a cruise to Antarctica is an unforgettable experience that will definitely stand out from the same old New Year’s Eve celebrations. Here are 5 reasons why many adventurers have travelled to Antarctica with us at this time of year.

1. Start the New Year packed with adventure

Zodiac cruise past giant icebergs, hike up Antarctica’s snowy slopes or paddle the icy waters filled with penguins and seals! Or try your hand at an obligatory bum slide or polar plunge into the icy waters for a refreshing start to the New Year!

2. Stay away from the crowds

Rejuvenate, unwind and take in the beauty and solace of Antarctica. Penguins busy feeding and breeding are the only hustle and bustle that you’ll experience in Antarctica – and there are not Boxing Day sales here!

3. Who needs fireworks?

We’ll party like it’s 1999 on the bow and bring in the New Year under the midnight sun. We’ll toast to good health with glasses of bubbly and enjoy the company of our like-minded expeditions as we ring in the New Year.

4. Build new friendships

Make some new friends for the New Year ahead on board Polar Pioneer. All passengers come from different backgrounds and walks of life; however their passion for travelling to Antarctica brings them together, offering interesting conversations, intriguing stories and friendships that last for years to come!

5. Reflect and make good resolutions

Whether it is giving up smoking, lose weight or get fit and healthy, start the year afresh in the most pristine place on earth! We hope you come away appreciating our planet’s pristine landscapes and hope you’ll be inspired to be more eco-friendly – after all, every little bit helps and matter.

If you’re interested in celebrating the New Year in Antarctica, our South Georgia & Antarctic Odyssey will have you ringing in 2018 on the Antarctic Peninsula, before heading off to explore the wildlife oasis of South Georgia. Contact us to find out more.
